Grapeshot, you're not the first. I was just reading recently(Not sure where, maybe on Gunboards) that during WW2, when reloading compomnents were even harder to come by than they are now, Surplus 30-40 was readily available. So they would break them down for components, to reload other calibers, and for .303 they would just trim the neck a bit and reload them.

Curious, though...30-40 brass has a bevel on the rim, that 303 doesn't. I never looked, but I guess since it worked without the bevel, then the Krag bolt face must not require the bevel.

OK, going through the brass pile at my range I came across this OLD .45-70 case.  The round had not been fired, but the bullet had been removed/pulled and the Black Powder charge had been dug out.  I say this because there were still BP residue clinging to the insides of the case.  The Primer also appears to be unfired and tinned as well, and it is a Balloon headed Case.

The head stamp is as follows from 12:00 clock wise:  F, 9, 2.  My knowledge on military head stamps tells me this may be for (F) Frankfort Arsenal, (9) September, (2) 1892.

Anyone out there have another take on this code?

.303 Brit & .30-40 are fraternal twins.  I haven't had to convert one to the other, but I use them both to convert to .375 nitro Express.

I say you have nothing to lose.  Go for it!

I have new 44 ruskie loads to try out in my mighty ordinance revolvers.

These are 240 grain bullets that will make my converted 1866 (was 44 special) sing better.

I think they may also do well in my frenchie revolvers. They sure are a pleasure to shoot single action.

I work at an indoor range that allows rifles to be fired as long as the ammo is soft point, hollow point or frangible.  I found 16 PPU .303 British brass that someone left on the floor.  After looking at them and taking them homer I measured the head diameter was .001 smaller than the head diameter of my .30-40 Krag Brass.  So, just for kicks I ran them through my .30-40 Sizing die and set the shoulder back a bit.  I then loaded them with 11 grains of Trail Boss and a 200 grain cast round nose GC bullet.  They shot very well at 25 yards.  I am curious if anyone else ever tried this.

The reformed brass is a few thousandths shorter than the factory .30-40 brass.  But since I am on a very strict budget and on a fixed income, any method to get shootable brass is fair as far as I'm concerned.

I was just watching this ol' movie. 'Bill' saves some people from 'Indians' and the Army Sergeant says that he'd recognize the sound of 'Bill's' Springfield anywhere. BUT 'Bill' is actually using a Yellowboy. At least the the gun he had was period. LOL

I don't understand why the scarcity of Rem #10's.  I see CCI #10 and 11's at gun shows and in gun shops. Rem #11's are around. I and others have posted before about the lack of Rem #10's. I called Remington some time back about the lack of availability of #10's. They advised they are producing them and shipping to dealers. I advised them that the only ones that seemed to have them are the 'big box' outfits like Cabela's and that they were selling them at inflated rip off prices. My local gun store owner has advised me for almost two years all his sources can't get them. It's not like cap and ball shooters are a 'large slice of the pie' of American shooters. Either Remington is not producing them, they are and 'big box' outfits are gettin' them, and/or some reason not known to users of percussion caps is in the shadows.

 Agree with Coffinmaker that primers "went through the roof" several years ago, but in my local, I can get them for $28-34 per 1000, close if not the same I was paying before the 2008 and 2012 price gouging. I think as I type this they may have been around $24 per 1000 before the first hoarder/rip off price debacle. Last time I was in a Cabela's I inquired about some Rem caps and the shop keep produced some and advised they were $60 some dollars. Told him Cabela's was 'rippin' off their customers and advised I don't buy from business's that are over pricing their products and left the store leaving the other items I had intended to buy laying on the counter.

 Up to around 2010-2011 Rem #10's selling for $31 per 1000 in my area and were available to be had. I bought some CCI #11's not to long ago at a gun show and payed $38 for a 1000. They're ok, but like the Rem 10's better, have several 1000 on hand, so I'm not in a drought situation with them. The new Rem 11's that john boy posted about, well maybe they will prove to be a acceptable replacement for 10's. I'll have to check his measurements with Mako's previously posted #10 dimensions to see how they measure up(miss the Mako). Better punch out, but for me and my dollars, Cabela's and the rest of the ilk rippin off the American cap and ballers can "pound sand" as long as they're selling caps at a inflated the price. Said and done. Crow Choker
